We all just want to “get it done.” Our lives are busy, we’re trying to move forward to the next step towards our dream goals or just take care of daily living projects. But when you’re selling your product or service on the internet, people will judge YOU and the quality of what you’re offering by the quality of your sales pages. If they’re full of spelling errors, lousy grammar, and boring sales copy – well, you get the picture.
Don’t lose customers because you just didn’t take the time to earn their trust by being careful with your web site. Use your spell checker – and if you’re not sure about a spelling or the grammar, ask someone who’s really good at those two things to read it over for you.
People tend to believe that if you are careful and professional with what’s written on your sales pages, you will be careful and professional with them as customers.
Here’s a fun poem that shows how a spelling checker can miss spelling and grammar errors:
Eye halve a spelling chequer
It came with my pea sea
It plainly marques four my revue
Miss steaks eye kin knot sea.
Eye strike a key and type a word
And weight four it two say
Weather eye am wrong oar write
It shows me strait a weigh.
As soon as a mist ache is maid
It nose bee fore two long
And eye can put the error rite
Its rare lea ever wrong.
Eye have run this poem threw it
I am shore your pleased two no
Its letter perfect awl the weigh
My chequer tolled me sew.
